Hammer 13 / Asian Art

The Carlo Monzino Estate Katana, Tsuba, Inro, Kozuka, Lacquer Asian Ivories from the Edy Klein Estate and an Armor from a Swiss Collection. As LiveAuctioneers Policies entirely bann listing of products derived from elephant parts, all ivories of this sale can be found on our site only. Although we of course support the animal protection cause, we do not see a problem in offering antique artworks made out of ivory. We are therefore ready to call up any interested person for phone-bidding. However the import and export of ivory is subject to the regulations of the CITES. Before you bid on those artworks, you should check if your country allows the import (USA i.e. does not allow the import). In any case all costs related to CITES formalities shall be borne by the purchaser.
